HHS hosts first-ever Salthawk Service Day

            Hutchinson High School’s student body will spend a morning in service learning on April 28.

            The first-ever Salthawk Service Day will be from 8 to 11:30 a.m. on April 28, which is an early-release day at HHS for the annual track meet. Since, the Kansas State Board of Education encourages all students to be involved in service, the early release day was an opportunity for HHS to get students into the community in an organized event.

            According to the state Board of Education, students who volunteer in their communities are more likely to vote, stay actively involved in service and feel empowered as citizens.

            The day starts with attendance and instruction with students fanning out across the community to a wide range of projects at 8:30 a.m. Projects range from maintenance and clean-up at several locations in the city to baking cookies for law enforcement to helping with a special populations track meet to visiting nursing home residents.

            A full listing of the projects is below.
